Do you get excited when facing a technical challenge? Do you want to contribute to the transition to a circular economy? Then the unique new Maastricht bachelor's program in Circular Engineering is the perfect choice for you: the engineer of the future. The Bachelor of Circular Engineering combines a rigid engineering foundation with in-depth knowledge and skills in one of three engineering concentrations while focussing on sustainability throughout the curriculum. These three concentrations are:

  • Circular Chemical Engineering
  • Sustainable Biotechnology
  • Engineering Physics for Sustainable Manufacturing

You can tailor your curriculum to your own needs, interests, and career goals, by using the open curriculum space in the second year to select from a large range of electives, by taking on engineering projects and internships of your choice, and by choosing one of the concentrations in the third year. By approaching problems from various disciplinary perspectives, you develop technical solutions for society and industry to address existing and future challenges.

Why this program?

A bachelor's in Circular Engineering prepares you to be the engineer of the future. In a circular economy, resources are reused and waste is minimized. Both are needed to create a long-lasting healthy planet and a strong economy. Circular engineers play a key role in the transition towards the circular economy as they have the knowledge and skills to design, develop and optimize products, processes, and services to enhance circularity for a sustainable society and industry.
